Great experience with the LMG clinic and staff; however, referral to the hospital's lab for blood draw was not as expected. I was given a 25-minute wait estimate by their check-in machine, but sat in the waiting room for an hour, with no indication how much time remained. If I'd known it would take that long for a 5-minute procedure, I would have made an appointment and come back another time, if they even take appointments. Please provide this feedback, they need to improve the lab intake operations, or LMG should use a better lab provider.

The only negative was the receptionist asked for the wrong amount for my copay, almost double my regular amount - good thing i know my benefits and can advocate for myself when mistakes are made. Dr. Young and the medical assistant Kimberly were very thorough and actually made the appointment fun and engaging - thank you for lifting my spirits during the visit! I felt heard and understood.

First of all it was made very clear when I called to schedule the appointment that I would be coming from 3 1/2 hours away and needed to get a very thorough check over. The back pain I have had for almost a year needed to be investigated to the fullest. The doctor did not feel my back or even have me do any moves for him so he could see what was going on. No x-rays of any kind taken. I got the feeling the doctor had no idea how to help me. The other thing that really bothered me was when I was leaving the appointment I heard the doctor talking to a fellow staff member laughing about the referrals he had just given me and joking "he was a bad doctor". This is far from professional and I will be changing doctors offices.

I am a retired physician. Dr. Young is new to me. I was surprised that my routine annual physical examination did not involve more of a hands on approach. I did not have to remove any of my clothes. My chest was auscultated through my clothing. There was no palpation of the abdomen, examination of breasts or rectum. Maybe I am a dinosaur. I guess this is the new approach to medicine! In truth I had no health issues at this time that needed to be approached. Maybe this was why my examination was conducted in this manner. I am not faulting my new internist.
